Daily Caffeine Count: 3
I did not start this blog for me to just ramble about my day to day doings that no one is really interested in. I really was planning on writing about a) recipes and cooking activities, b) weight loss/work out notes and tidbits and/or c) nursing school progress. Or perhaps any other project I decide to undertake. But something interesting. And I didn't want it to be a place where I just complained about my "oh-so-hard" life. Because it's not. I'm very lucky, and have so many opportunities in hand right now, complaining would be bad form. So let's call this a recap of a not so easy week in the life of Bubblymuppet.
I was hoping this weekend I would get a chance to get in the kitchen and a) don the cute apron Car made for my birthday, b) make those muffins I mentioned in a previous post, c) make some banana bread again since I doubt I'll eat three mushy bananas by then and d) get some rest (not in the kitchen). Much needed rest.
Ok, I'll stop with the a's, b's and c's.
Anyway, my point. I have had a rough week. It's been long, I've been sick and had so much work, I really wasn't sure how I would get everything done at less than 100%. But it's Thursday night. This was the light at the end of my seemingly never ending tunnel of work and school work. I'm on my second round of antibiotics, so I'm really hoping these take effect soon. Although my guess is as soon as I get some decent and consistent sleep, I'll feel a whole lot better. I had multiple interrupted nights from coughing, then I was getting less than my required 7-8 hours because I was studying for TWO Microbiology tests. Oh, and "helping" S with his Spanish class, which included another test and four hours of homework. And work. Work is just tiring and a bit stressful with client revisions that are pretty insane. But that's my opinion. I'm not a planner, or the client. What do I know? And I am happy I have my job, even if it does get crazy.
I've been chugging sugar free Rockstar's like they are water - I'm pretty sure my caffeine count was at an all time high this week. Too bad I forgot to record it. My eating habits also decline in healthiness during weeks like these. Last week I barely ate at all. The plus side was I lost 3.5 pounds. The bad side is I'm afraid if I start eating again, I'll gain it all back. Plus when you have Chick-Fil-A for breakfast and McDonald's for dinner. . .
Looking forward, I'm probably only going to take off tomorrow night and start right back up again on Saturday with my Microbiology Annotated Bibliography paper and prepping for test two, which opens next week. The sooner I start, the more prepared I'll be and hopefully less stressed. And that's the reason why my hopes of getting into the kitchen this weekend are diminishing.
Oh well, c'est la vie.
